You're better off with two cans and a string!
by Chuck Johnson
I recently began service with Virgin Mobile (03-14-11). Well that's when they accepted my money and began causing me a world of misery. Thus far, I've had virtually NO service. If I can get a web connection it fails. The phone and text are at best, hit-and-miss. A low price is only a good deal if you get something out of it.
Virgin Moble may be a good deal if you live directly under one of their towers, but in a rural area, don't waste your money. I could forgive a few hiccups if not for the fact they have a fake email address. Yes, FAKE!
This email address does NOT take you anywhere. Certainly not on their weak network. And good luck with the convoluted Virgin Mobile website. That's another nightmare for a different time...
Bottom line, you get what you pay for.
Thanks for your comments, however, I should note that this appears to be the second prepaid phone company you've criticized on this site in the last few days (the first comment was about problems with Tracfone).
From what I know, Virgin relies on Sprint's network. Tracfone relies on either the AT&T or Verizon network depending on your area. I don't know which company has the best coverage in your area, but I would go with that one.
